I’m pretty sure it’s Thursday night. It doesn’t seem possible, but if yesterday was Wednesday, and tomorrow is Friday . . .
So here we go with the third Focus Check Friday. I was so excited to wake up to multiple links last week. I hope that it helps you to stop for a moment and collect your thoughts on what is and isn’t working in your home, and maybe determine your focus for next week. If you’re new here, you can read more about the idea behind Focus Check Friday here.
This week has been decent. Not perfect, but pretty good. I did all of my weekly tasks, mopping, bathrooms, etc. My least successful daily task has been the focused 5 minute pick-up. I’m always amazed at what a difference those make, and how the house doesn’t look nice, no matter what big tasks I do, if I don’t do the daily pick-up.
Next week is the final week before the glorious summer begins. This means that I have assemblies, picnics, parties, etc. every single day next week. My goal for the week will be to keep up my daily tasks, putting extra emphasis on the focused 5 minute pick-ups. I want the house to feel orderly to start the summer.
I shared my goals for the summer earlier in the week. I’m determined to keep the momentum going that I’ve gained on the house this year. I need to make checklists for the dusting and vacuuming. They won’t be anywhere near as detailed as the bathroom checklist, but they need to be done. I also want to go to the Dollar Tree and get some spray bottles to make kid-safe bathroom cleaners, and get the boys their own supplies to use (sponges, a bucket, etc). It is my goal to have all of this done next week so that there will be no excuses on Day 1 of summer.
How’s your focus? Think of this as your excuse to ramble on. Leave a comment, write a post on your blog and link up below, or just stop for a minute to think about it. As I’ve said before, keeping my focus is what has made the biggest difference for me on this journey.
If you do link up your post below, be sure to say something like, “I’m participating in Focus Check Friday over at A Slob Comes Clean” and then link back to this post. If you need help to know how to do this, please ask. I’ll be happy to help.
